I've had to buy some make up lately, so I thought now might be a good time to talk about some of my favs! 
Skincare - Let me start by saying that I never had any issues with acne or skin problems as a child/teenager. It wasn't until I started in the workforce that my face began to break out. I don't know if this is a culprit of stress, hormones from Birth Control, or even an increase in working out (especially with makeup). I started using ProActiv which did a really good job of clearing up my skin. So why did I want to change? Because it used to bleach my wash cloths and I thought, what is it doing to my skin? Also, Proactiv has a policy that you have to be a part of their club & they would send you the refills automatically. I didn't like that. You can return it but I don't want another errand so I started to search out an alternative. At one point, I tried Arbonne which broke my skin out so badly that I was actually embarrassed to go anywhere. It was really really bad. So FINALLY, after some seeking, I found a couple of products that I absolutely adore. 
1. Clinique Acne Solutions

I use the foam wash, the toner and the lotion. Because the acne lotion can dry your skin out, I also use 
2. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

I use this in the mornings and I straight up love it. 

3. 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula

I use this in the morning too. It seems to really help my breakouts if I keep my skin clear and do a daily scrub.
 I have to use all of the above, but when I am consistent and do this - my skin stays clear

A few other favs in my make up bag - 
4. MAC Concealor

I straight up love this concealor. I have never been able to find anything to replace this. It's the perfect coverage, perfect consistency, everything. Love it. 

5. MAC Lipglass in PRRRR

Best lipgloss ever. It stays on well, it's a little thicker and stickier, which I like because, again, it stays on longer. 
So - those are the things I can't live without in my makeup bag!
Namaste, y'all!
